Justice v. Hosemann: Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Supplemental Letter Brief of CLC Urging Reversal and Addressing Catholic Leadership Coalition of Texas v. Reisman

Court Level
Fifth Circuit

Catholic Leadership involved a challenge to Texas campaign finance provisions imposing certain obligations on newly-formed “general-purpose political committees” in Texas, including an outright restriction on such a committee’s ability to raise and spend funds within a limited temporal window (i.e., a waiting period), as well a requirement for the committee to appoint a treasurer and register with the State before receiving contributions or making expenditures above a specified threshold ($500).
